Sun cupcake with sunglasses

It’s supposed to more than 100 degrees in my town this week, so I figured it was a good time to post this sunshine cupcake. All you need are fruit gels, M&Ms and licorice (no piping, but you’ll need to get your scissors sticky!)

What You Need: 1 cupcake; yellow frosting (I used “Spring” frosting in a can); assorted sugar-coated fruit gels or gems; 2 black M&Ms; 2 small sections of black string licorice; scissors.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Cut fruit gels in quarters using scissors. Arrange gels, pointy side out, slightly overlapping the edge of the cupcake (eat the extras wedges!). Place 2 black M&Ms upside down for sunglasses and add black licorice to each side for frames.
